Hey Mama Edie!. Hey I wanted to ask you about your experience with Ancestry.com. Im wondering if I should go ahead and give it a whirl. Im been trying like hell to research my family tree and gain access to documents and I have no idea where to start. My uncle has provided me names and dates of relatives on my grandmothers side going back as far as my great great grandmother but thats where it stops. The more I research the issue of the slave trade and what went on in that era the more I question how true it was. I dont believe we all came from slave ancestry like we've been led to believe all of these years. Plus, its now come out that history has been taught to us in reverse and that alot of Blacks in America may be indiginous to this continent. The reason I bring this up because I was told by my uncle that my great great grandparents were not slaves. They were free and possibly dark skinned Native Americans. But I wont know that until I gain access to the documents. How reliable was Ancestry to you?
Yes Edie, we sure had some good times up in here. Memories that I will keep forever. I`m surprised and glad that you keep the place open. Reminds me of how mom used to keep the porch light on for us kids that got home a little late. Seeing that light let us know that we were home and safe. :) And yes, I happened to see Chick`s name and remember her from back in the day. It sure would be nice if we had a reunion up in here. lol I know I`m planning on stopping by more often. You take care and thanks for leaving the light on.
I loved the movie. I would like to go see it again, this time in 3D. Sad its getting so much hate tho smh. Them Hotep fools need to calm down instead of trying to ruin it for the kids. I dont see how it was a disrespect to the Black Panthers. Yeah it ties into Oakland,Ca but that is because its Ryan Cooglers hometown,
